7:05 am
we had five days in a row of 90's across the northeast, a major heatwave. look at the blues, 50 that's and 40's and lighter purple. 30's across areas of minnesota and cold air in, it's not going to stay, but coming in waves throughout this week or so. that we'll see some kind of dips and see a little bit of cold air. no real rain to speak of. anywhere across the u.s. the eastern part looking great and across the south a few showers into florida and this bit of a system will bring showers across the far northern plains today. aside from that, things are pretty calm. we're going to continue to watch the tropics and this is was gastone and people will see redevelopment over the next couple of days and yesterday the wave that was here and it's a little more interesting right now and this could be some tropical development and a little more interesting, closer to land. and we could see maybe some developments in around the texas area this week and certainly a lot of rain in across areas of texas and just a matter of how much wind we
7:06 am
see along with that. the temperatures today. a lot of 90's out there and clayton for you 107. >> i was going to say, feels leak we're all here. >> that's an apple cider weather. >> feels like fall, like a big week ahead for the president and for the democrats. it's pretty much now or never as far as laying out an economic agenda to try and spur the economy, but more importantly, trying to get some legislative winds-- legislative wins ahead of the november mid terms. what can they do with so little time left? not much. >> the president headed to wisconsin and ohio trying to drum up support for what the white house is calling this morning, positive news, so they're spinning this in a way that, you know, most of the mainstream media, just about everyone on friday when the jobs numbers came out, didn't find the positive news. the white house thinks 67,000 additional jobs that private companies hired was more than the 40,000 they thought they would hire. that's the one area that the president's going to hang his
7:07 am
hat on this. >> they need twice that to keep up with population growth. >> right, of course, the unemployment rate did tick up again to 9.6 from 9.5. here are some of the measures that the president is going to go and talk about in milwaukee on tuesday, more tax breaks for small business, obviously, so many people have been calling for that, that would be good news for small business owners. new spending on infrastructure, and then possible option that he would have to call upon congress, the act of extending research and development tax credit. what's interesting, there's a second one, right. >> new spending on infrastructure because lots of critics are saying this is the second stimulus. >> right. >> well, weren't we supposed to already be spending on infrastructure, shovel ready packages and the white house says it's knots a second stimulus, nothing akin to the 814 billion that's already been spent and it would be a much, much smaller number. >> and for two reasons they know that stimulus is incredibly unpopular and
7:08 am
there's money left and there are various reasons, but it clearly is clear that the president wants to layout taxes and that's the agenda to try to appeal to some of the republicans, try to appeal to the middle class that we're going to lower your taxes, lower business taxes. that's the main pitch ahead of november. >> and 30 billion dollars additionally for small business loans. that was a big thing and a lot of people saying why didn't this happen much sooner? a lot of people thought that small business growth would have been the reason to stimulate the economy. that's something the white house didn't do up until now and of course, republicans are saying, look, this is just one more stimulus when you add this up. take a look at the screen though. this is what the budget predictions, the deficit budget predictions are from the economic team. this is a record right now. 1.4-- 1.47 trillion this year. and it could drop down to 1.42 trillion in 2011 and that of course coming from the white house economic team.
7:09 am
>> let's look what the president has in store this week, what the schedule is. tonl, a labor day rally in milwaukee that he'll be visiting and then his big speech, the big economic speech will be out of cleveland. on-- >> wednesday. >> wednesday, thank you. and then on friday. >> friday. >> he'll be having had a news conference at the white house and we understand he chose that place in cleveland, that location of cleveland because that's where john boehner had given a speech about the problems with our economy. so the president is trying to counter that. >> meanwhile, the democratic campaign committee chairman, chris van holland has been pushing for something interesting. which kind of flies in the face of what the white house has been saying, which is possibly an extension of those push tax cuts for the wealthy. in fact, chris van holland actually giving a speech to pbs. take a listen to what he said. this might fly in the face of what president obama and timothy geithner had to say about it, take a listen.
7:10 am
it seems to me the big issue is republican demand for permanent tax cuts because they're not saying only, let's keep this going for one more year. that could be part of the discussion. >> he says it's on the table extending the tax cuts and possibly making it one more year, you don't want to do that in the face of recession he's saying. >> yeah, raising taxes, everyone could agree that's a tough thing to sell and tough thing to work in this count. why is chris van holland important? because he's in charge of the democrat's congressional campaign. the face of this thing going into november so if he is open to it, you have to figure many other dems are in line and there are some like ben nelson, three or four democrats who have come out in favor of exabout tending that wealthy bush tax. but you haven't heard from the president on that or nancy pelosi and hard to know if chris van holland was giving us a telescope in the future if that's what we'll be hearing. >> i don't think so. >> or for himself there. >> because treasury secretary
7:11 am
tim geithner is on the record saying he's one of the reasons we're in this mess is because of the bush tax cuts and allowing them to continue at the white house is not something that's favorably. >> and meanwhile, van holland as we talked about he of course is the chairman of the d triple c. and make sure they're in the house of representatives and what he, van holland is talking about doing, something interesting on the front of new york time. calling it political triage. looking at new polling data just out and see who has gained some traction in the past month. if you haven't gained any traction recently, they're actually thinking about sacrificing you, democratic member of the house, so that they could put their resources and money towards those who are locked in really intense battles who might win. >> yeah, go out to dave's home state of colorado. this is the fourth congressional district there, representative betsy marky right now if you look at the
7:12 am
poll numbers, 11 points behind out there. that's a huge problem up against cory gardner, up by 11 points. they say, okay, that's an example where they might say that's a lost race. we'll have to rejigger that and put it into the races that we can save. >> giving up on the people, but they are going to redirect some of the national money and who else, let's run through some quickly, perelio in virginia, the incumbent could go and kilroy in ohio, spratt in south carolina and betsy marky and six targeted they say may not have gained traction in the polls and may have to concentrate on others and republicans need around 40 to gain control of the house and make john boehner the speaker. so that's all that democrats want to do right now is try to maintain a slim majority. >> and van holland alerted them, it's not the first time this morning.
7:13 am
>> they woke up and read the times. >> of the d triple c. >> we only need 214 seats for majority. who told us that? it comes down to math. let us know if you think the plan will work for the democrats this morning. we'll talk with our political panel. we told the president's plan to boost the economy and some say that democrats are just at a loss when it comes to creating jobs. our political panel weighing in on that next. >> do you sleep with your cell phone in your bed? >> yeah. >> i think you're looking at three guilty culprits. you're not alon. the startling number of us who cannot put the phone away, even when we're catching z's. interesting grooming.

7:15 am
7:16 am
>> welcome back to "fox &
7:17 am
friends." new numbers showing unemployment now, 9.6% and while president obama is set to announce emergency initiatives this week to try to jump start the economy, some day dems are at a loss when it comes to solving political problems and on the radio, democratic strategist and a senior fellow project 21en and a fox news contributor. nice to see you. >> good morning. >> we said at the intro, at a loss. are democrats at a loss. we have two months until the election to hang their hat on a project. a lot of these aren't popular with the american people. >> well, here is the ash here, the democrats are very much in a tight spot as it relates to the economy and a devastatingly deep hole and there are no magic bullets. will they solve all the problems, no, because we're in a deep recession, but they will help. the small business bill, lending bill that's waiting in
7:18 am
congress that the senate republicans are blocking despite having helped write it. that bill would be a lifeline for manufacturing and construction companies who rely on loans to meet the payroll. >> a number of people disagree with you, including the publisher of the nonpartisan rothenberg political report. he said this week unless and until the public becomes convinced that the obama policy is working that jobs are created. it doesn't matter how many speeches the president gives, promising to fix the economy. james, do you agree with tara or disagree? >> i disagree with tara. the country does have no confidence whatsoever in the administration and i think it's high time that people agree that keynesian economics don't work. the government cannot bail the country out of this. we need small businesses to be unleashed and let go and no government program or policy or speech is going to
7:19 am
accomplish that, only tax cuts are going to accomplish that and only deregulation is going to accomplish that. >> another big problem for democrats is the recent polls, a gallup poll, most people saying they'd rather have a republican newcomer than a democrat and they're not worried about independents, they want republicans in there. that's a huge problem. >> the polls are a reflection of the policy of the white house that the people are not happy with it. it's too little too late with the economy. it's going on almost two years now. it's too little, too late. the spending the deficit the debt. unemployment keeps going up and almost 800 billion dollar stimulus bill which didn't stimulate anything, bailed out-- >> it might be too little, too late and we'll have you respond and the president waiting now to do this middle class bill even despite what the republicans have done, 20 months into his administration. next with our panel, young voters helped put president obama and democrats in office and now that none of them can find jobs they're living with

7:21 am
gecko: uh...yeah... all right as long as we don't overdo it. vo: geico. fifteen minutes could save you fifteen percent or more on car insurance.
7:22 am
7:23 am
>> well, they helped elect president obama, but now, young voters seem to be turning on him. a new poll from the pew research shows the number of young or millennium voters who identify themselves as democrats has fallen dramatically since the 2008 election. does this spell disaster for the dems. we're back with our panel. let me start with you, does this spell disaster for democrats, losing that base of voters who were excited as
7:24 am
never seen before to elect president obama. . >> the words hope and change does not show a plan and young voters know that redistributing wealth does not provide jobs. kids out of college are moving back home as you mentioned in the intro, it unfortunate. we need jobs and an economy. >> does age matter at all. the kids are moving back home and the leadership run by democrats, the white house, senate, the house, what are this he going to look to. >> clearly when you're in power they look to you and young people are frustrated, they're anxious and understandable. at the same time a lot of polling that spells trouble for democrats is not great news for republicans. it's not like the republicans are lighting the world on fire. young people remember that republicans ran up the bar tab and skipped out on it. and are the measures of democrats working as well as they like, no, they're not. at least they're making an effort and trying and there
7:25 am
have been positive results and 3 million jobs is a lot for those whose jobs that counts for. >> some positive in the fact that the republicans aren't doing well either, but you do have a point and james, tara has a point. the republicans aren't lighting the world on fire and some democrats don't reflect highly on republicans. in fact, independents and tea party members seem to be faring the best in a lot of the polls. it's true, but the real issue is, aren't republicans and democrats, generational, the baby boomer bailout, those have come home to roost and what young people are recognizing is that the boomers and the generation that came before them, the generation that calls all of this debt, all of these bailouts and the generation after that are going to have to pay for it and i think that's sinking home, souring the millenials against democrats who are in office and who did triple down on it and the republicans as well.
7:26 am
>> and it's interesting when you look at some of the young voters, what they're saying, we receive a lot of e-mails, tweets, facebook messages, we want all the bums thrown out. republicans and democrats. is that what we're seeing among young voters, discontent across the board? >> it looks like a lot of change going on the upcoming election. the young voters are smart, they realize they want jobs, jobs now and you don't impose policies that are going to take jobs away like the drilling ban in the gulf, for example, 23,000 jobs. >> final word, how do democrats get the young voters back in two months, can they? >> i think the democrats may need to focus-- i'm different from most strategists, i think we need to focus on policy and doing the right thing. i think that good public policy is good politics and focus on things that will get people back to work and that's what democrats need to focus on and call the republicans out when they block those things. >> final word, can democrats do anything in the next two months to turn the ship around? . no, they can't do it. they had their chance, done everything they could with the
7:27 am
bailouts and-- >> and it's less than two years, come on, less than two years of time and we don't get into that kind of hole as deep as we are and get out of it overnight it's just not reality. >> leave it there. >> it's not reality. >> we'll continue this gra great discussion in commercial break among ourselves. dave and aly, what is coming up. >> millions of americans are deep in debt and in danger of losing their home. a new plan coming up next. >> a teenager told to take the american flag off his truck so it wouldn't make fellow students uncomfortable. you've got to hear that. >> what's a labor day without a good barbecue. about burgers with a twist, former top chef contestant, ryan scott. there he is, grilling it up this morning. ♪ proud to stand on our own

7:48 am
happens to fall on september 11th. so, muslims are worried that the festivities they'll be having the celebrations they'll be having will be miss interpreted and it sounds like it will involve some religious education. >> what we have to do is avoid any images or groupings of people that could then be put out on the web and be misinterpreted as anger or hatred and there are all sorts of examples. let me tell you a story after 9/11, something my mother did, had a big impact on our family and repeat it. there was a woman in our neighborhood, who wore a berka and after september 11th my mom knocked on the door, i wanted to introduce myself. i'm sure it's a tough time for you, great respect for your family and they became great friends. it's that type of thing in our local community saying let's get to know each other. that doesn't mean there's no dangers, doesn't mean, there

7:54 am
days, clothe, music, taste. >> they look the same, you can tell by the clothing. this problem is ideologically they're the same. the problem is they think the same way, by default what they're told to think and the reaction, they don't like to be told that. >> and the reaction was not positive. apparently there is a group who is proud to identify themselves as hipsters and they were not so happy with your column. >> no, they accused me of hate speech and firstly, i don'tble in hate speech laws, because they ultimately only serve to legislate thought and opinions, but if you want to talk about that, talk about protected minority groups, you're born black, you're born jewish, you weren't born a moron. i mean, that's the point to this piece, listen, you need to think for yourself. don't just follow the crowd and now when you're looking at liberal ideology, look what's going on right now in the world, exespecially extreme, prevalent in the hipster

three other people are missing, the israeli air strikes are in retaliation for a rocket launch. they were held for several days to not disrupt the peace summit in washington. the israeli prime minister netanyahu and palestinian president abbas have agreed to meet again next week in egypt, despite the new violence. crews are trying to figure out what started a fire on new york's sanitation pier. loads of trash and cars burned, sending thick black smoke into the west side of the city and the trailer where the fire began, housed a locker room for department employees and officials worried that the strong winds would spread to a nearby pier where fuel lines could have turned the blaze into a full-blown disaster. that didn't happen. here are your headlines. >> a check of the fall-like conditions out east and 31 right now in international falls, so good morning fall and international falls, and just to the south of it. 40's and 50's across areas of the central plains, but that
8:03 am
cold air spread down into northern parts of louisiana and in across arkansas and we had some temps in the 40's as you're weaking up and feels like a very, very nice thing after all the heat. as far as rain goes, not a whole lot going on, huge showers up across the great lakes and northern plains, we'll see a few showers today as well. but really, our eyes again are going to be on the trop ex-for much of this coming week and a couple of things to watch. this thing here not looking impressive, but most of the models indicate it will redevelop and become gastone again and potentially some impacts for the u.s. eastern seaboard, maybe toward the florida area, around seven to ten days around. and this one here could be more concerning, some models develop this and bring it on shore across the areas of mexico, nevertheless we'll get pretty significant rain this week in across parts of texas for at that moisture. you notice the dips here and what we'll continue to see under lating across the country. 83 today in rapid city and
8:04 am
tomorrow, only in the 50's. so, major temperature drop and we'll see the cold air moving in across the northern are the pa of the country. this week. warming up a few degrees and cooling down and feeling like fall, summer, fall, summer. >> did you say undulating. >> and i like that, and try to work that in. >> that will be great in the cooking segment next time. >> and let's talk about this, ten years ago, the u.s. had the best jobs rate, the best employment rate in the world. people came to the u.s., because they knew it was the golden land of opportunity and they had so many jobs. ten years later, we are somehow plummeted. >> unbelievable. >> to the worst in the world. so we actually-- the second highest employment rate ten years ago, now, we are the worst. >> yeah, and the problem is, that so many employers cut jobs significantly, look at alcoa, for instance, one of the companies out of pittsburgh highlighted in the piece that actually slashed
8:05 am
30,000 jobs, 30,000 jobs, but one of the reasons a lot of the companies now are sitting on hoards of cash. they made a lot of money. one of the quickest ways to get back to profitability, to slash jobs. other countries though, germany, for instance, japan, didn't necessarily cut as many jobs. they rolled back people's hours, but look at the numbers around the world. >> they're surprising and among the major economic forces. not all third world countries and smaller countries, the major economic powers. u.s. 9.7%, france 9.5. italy 8.7. so we trail, italy, trail sweden, we trail the u.k. all in the unemployment and that's just surprising to me, guys. i thought despite all of this we would still rank among the highest in the major economic powers, but we really are slipping. >> particularly after all the economic crisis throughout europement look at what happened in greece and yet, still, we are beneath all of them for employment because as clayton said, what the answer, what our big employers answer has been, it's to layoff people whereas other countries
8:06 am
have cut back on hours. >> and spending. >> and profitability. >> look at the numbers here. the top five best countries right now. take a look at your screen on this one. i'm shocked by this, especially japan. right? we're hearing about the economic troubles that japan is going through and could in fact look like the united states and yet, this is number two or jobs and netherlands, look at that, ten years ago. >> they're always up there. >> and germany is kind of a rock at number five and one of the things i wonder about this recession or depression whatever you want to call it. if companies realized they can make it, they can get bah by and turn a profit with fewer employees, what is their incentive to hire them back, if they found out, hey, we can make it on a thinner, leaner work force. >> and that's a great point. we see this, maybe there would be a double dip recession, some economists saying the fears of that are unlikely. but the companies are sitting
8:07 am
on hoards of cash and all the people we talk to from the fox business network say, they just don't have-- they're not spending any money. you know, 30 billion dollars in the bank and not hiring. >> sitting on piles of cash. all right, with two months left before these pivotal november mid terms, you're going to see the political ads pop up like crazy and see the yard signs stuck in the crash, that is little old school, but out there, but the new front in the political war is on youtube where politicians are turning, especially those that don't have a ton of money for media buys. they're doing their creative ads on youtube to get the attention of the younger voters. >> makes a lot of sense. when you holook at the number of young people watching the mobile devices and laptop communities. look at numbers from the pew poll. 18 to 29 year olds, 42% of folks say they're getting content from the internet. >> and we also know that a third of those 18 to 29 year olds, regularly get updates,
8:08 am
political updates, via youtube. let's take a look at some of the ads that you can see this season on youtube. thises a g.o.p. candidate, mattie fine. let's watch a clip. >> it was you that said you were for freedom of the press when you tried to block stories instead, saying how obviously you were. and it was you who said you were pro israel when in reality you were doing business with companies in iran. ahmadnejad was my boyfriend. >> my gosh! >> this is not your traditional political ad. >> do you think. >> you've got to get attention on youtube, a tough environment to compete so you really have to mix it up and be competitive and edgy and creative and that's what they're doing and striking a cord. >> they have to be short and sweet. we know the average length of a youtube video is two minutes. short and sweet. mike weinstein from florida, another ad they ran, take a
8:09 am
look with teens and-- >> ♪ ♪ mike, mike, mike, weinstein ♪ ♪ work aring hard for the usa. >> my gosh i'm voting to are that candidate, wron what he stands for, no idea, but i'm ro voting for him. >> that ad almost makes him hip. >> he wasn't the one singing. that's was thinking he was the lead singer, but not really. >> the one that got this going though, in garnered the most attention, the demon sheep from carly fee rina from the gubernatorial race in california. a lot of press and attention and struck a chord with the younger voters. take a look at the demon sheep. >> you see what he tells us,
8:10 am
or see what he's become over the years, an fcino. fiscal conservative in name only, a wolf in sheep's clothing. a man who literally helped put the state of california on the path to bankruptcy and higher taxes. might there be a better choice, someone who has not made a career of politics. >> i said governor, but-- >> i believe this one from alabama, i believe. watch this. >> here we are, losing three family farms a day. illegals bust in by the thousands and alabama unemployment set an all time high. what are my opponents doing. >> stealing the signs from the dark of night and he brags on facebook page, receiving contributions from industries he would regulate. bragging about receiving illegal money on facebook, and
8:11 am
who would support such a dummy. >> okay. that was agriculture commission he was running, but that sort of scott brown, remember he had the pickup truck and this is i have my horse, i'm comfortable here. >> and uses the word dummy. >> and let's also talk about something that hasn't been talked about, the campaign ads and the way in which things are regulated are different on web and the things you can get away with on the internet are different than the broadcast, and a totally different environment, excuse me for spitting, on the web. >> never mind we'll wipe that. >> do you check out and do you get political updates via youtube, we recommend "fox & friends" for your political news, a good place to turn. >> and get your supplemental information on fox news. >> right. >> the new strategy in afghanistan is to actually tolerate corruption, but isn't the whole point of the war to clean the country up? a former ceo operative is here
8:12 am
next to talk about it. >> we told you yesterday about a man trying to put up signs with religious messages on roadways, his town is saying no. we'll talk with him. >> who has a better burger, dave. >> i do. >> according to a survey, it's not mcdonald's or burger king, who did come out on top in the burger wars. i'll bet five guys. >> what about in and out burger? >> they're good, too.

8:16 am
dealings with and this morning we're learning that the united states government may be behind closed doors meeting with these individuals and brokering partnerships. aren't these bums supposed to be thrown out? >> well, the problem for the united states, you can if you throw the bums out, who do you put in. the only entity with noncorruption in afghanistan is the taliban. i think the more important thing is though, who cares about the corruption in afghanistan? one would think that we're fighting a war to kill our enemies and that's where our efforts should be, should be put. but then who are the enemies there? because this morning, even, reading the cover story inside corruptastan. why are we making deals inside the karzai, perhaps we should be making deals in the taliban, they perhaps are less corrupt. what question is the right to ask in this situation? >> the right question is what is in the interest of the
8:17 am
united states and the american people. the answer to that question, as it was on 9/11 is to destroy as much of the taliban and al-qaeda as we can and then get out of that country. it doesn't matter to the united states who rules there or what kind of government they put in. >> so does it matter to the afghan people. we like to draw the illusions between afghan and setting up a stable government. if we believe success is a stable. should we think in afghanistan, a stable noncorrupt government. >> no, i think you see it unravelling as we speak. in afghanistan, one of the surest way to ensure war in that country, historically to try to impose a central government that works. afghanistan is overwhelmingly a country of local regimes, not even provinces, but villages, valleys, individual
8:18 am
places. the more you create a central government, the more you earn the hatred of the people, and the more money you waste, frankly. >> is the white house spinning this in a direction that makes it sound as if there's little or some corruption in afghanistan? looking at reports this morning, i'm seeing it's still ranked above somalias a the most corrupt government in the world. >> it is, it's corrupt from top to bottom. part of the reason, we've put in a lot of people who are nominally afghans and they know that when we leave and the taliban takes over again, they're going to be executed. so, what they're doing is trying to make as much money as they can and then make sure they get out before we're gone. and so, it's a nightmare that's unfolding. >> michael, great perspective this morning. former cia operative. we appreciate you joining us on "fox & friends." >> thank you, sir. >> let me know, clayton morris on twitter, should we be brokering a deal with the taliban or trying to go after our enemies altogether. >> coming up on the show, it's

8:24 am
right does not give an adequate base for human dignity and american freeman. >> i think that the perception is that the founders were intent on separating church and state. and people think that that was their ideal, but is that a misinterpretation of history and wh they intended? >> well, they intended to have a separation of institution of the state from the ecle ecclesiastical institution. and they borrowed from the church in england and christians that came up that church and state were to be independent. when we're not trying to take over the state like medieval times, we're saying that christian world view principles can leaven a civil society and give it the basic rights of human rights and dignity. >> you say that secularism is dangerous and you see illustrations all the time in schools. give me an example.
8:25 am
>> the book, saving leonardo starts with a stunning example. it's a book, hank the cow dog my son loved. and cbs made at one point a video out of this book for saturday morning cartoons. but what they didn't-- they changed it significantly. the book takes place on a family farm. excuse me, family ranch, a cattle ranch, it's a husband and wife, a little boy and ranch hand who lives down the street and cbs turned it into a video and suddenly they weren't married anymore and the woman had become the boss, a ranch boss and her husband demoted to ranch hand to work for her. and all three adults live in kind of bunk house and the kiddies period entirely. and what happened here? marriage, a trap for women, you know, family, an outdated and oppressive social institution, children, a barriers to women's career aspirations and by the way,
8:26 am
even if the cattle ranch was no longer a ranch, a scourge on the environment and turned into a chicken farm. even saturday morning cartoons for children are taken over by radicalized secular ideologies and helping people to recognize the idling when they perpetrate down to the culture, movies, film and tv. >> what a fascinating exploration of this. the book is "saving leonardo", thanks for coming in. >> thanks for having me. >> a new player who lets people acts a the taliban and killing u.s. ders. should it be banned more than the military? and one idea to pay off debt letting drivers speed, but of course, there's a catch. details coming up. interesting grooming.

actually did more harm than good. tracy byrnes from the fox business network is here to break it down for us. we kept hearing how bad all of this was this week, and that the president is going to be rolling out more stimulus plans later this week. is it going to do more harm than good? >> it costs much more and get the end result they wanted? no, the housing market is way in the toilet. we have 12 1/2 month fly of inventory on the market. the average is seven months so we have a flood of homes out there. interest rates the lowest we've seen on record, under 4.4% and no one is doing anything. no one is-- >> right, i mean, the conventional wisdom would say that a tax credit or a tax cut helps to juice things so why didn't the home buyer tax credit work? >> because all it did was pull people off the bus maybe thinking about buying in the summer, pulled them in so they could get the credit. cost us 22 billion dollars when all was said and done between the three different credits they offered and cost
8:47 am
us so much money and it didn't fix the housing market. >> and some actually say that people actually tried to sell their homes prematurely and it flooded the market with inventory, but i wanted to get to cash for clunkers, it also boosted sales temporarily, in the short-term, a spike for the car industry and they were loving it. but what's the long-term effect? i think it's the used cars have actually increased because of this. >> right. >> talk about unintended consequences. i don't think anyone was thinking when they offered $4500 credit you had to turn in your clunker. part of the deal was the dealer had to destroy the car. >> right. >> so, in order to save the environment. right. so we destroy the used cars and now middle america going to look for used cars in a time when they're uncertain, prices are over, you know, 10% more than they were last summer because there's less used cars available. >>, but there's also a lot of fraud associated with it because it's clear that some of the car dealers pulverized

9:06 am
these tough economic numbers, these jobs numbers we saw on friday, in fact the president yesterday in the saturday radio address calling it positive news. and, that because they -- the private sector gained 67,000 jobs, that was better than the 40,000 jobs, the private sector was expected to hire. and, of that, of course it comes on the heels of the other sectors of the economy that lost employment, and, those... unemployment numbers skyrocketing and that is what the president has to do this week, talk about them. >> alisyn: and tomorrow, he'll be at a rally in milwaukee and will try to put the positive spin on it and, then he's going to ohio, for a big economic -- big economic speech, on wednesday. and, so, yes, he has a lot to do and here's some of the measures they will likely be highlighting, first, the president plans to talk about more tax breaks, for small businesses, and will be welcome news, so many people have been clamoring for that, any sort of break for small businesses so they can hire again and then, next, new spending on infrastructure, that one is curious, because, that is what,
9:07 am
if you remember, the original stimulus was designed for, those shovel-ready projects. >> clayton: recovery. >> alisyn: and this is harder to sell, because, obviously republicans and critics say that is a second stimulus. >> dave: and that will be opposed, and the third one is extending a research and development tax credit, trying to get the companies to pour in money into research, developing new products, and, basically, a swap, though, one tax, for another, and, how will republicans counter that, they have to be at this point in favor of tax cuts, and we know they are in favor of extending the bush tax cuts and will be interesting to see how it plays out. >> clayton: that is a curious position for republicans who pushed the obama administration for the middle class businesses and the small businesses and now for them to owe pppose it will curious to see, and what they are hammering the white house about is this deficit, the
9:08 am
currents deficit predictions from the white house economic team, this is right now a record year for the deficit. huge, enormous. and a lot of economists say we cannot do anything, running these deficits. and, the white house predicting, 2011, it will drop down to $1.42 trillion in 2011. >> alisyn: as you know, the midterms are just two months away and all of this is really coming to the fore, and the chairman of the democratic congressional campaign committee, or also known that's dccc is talking about things, opening the door, some people think, for the first time, to whether or not the bush tax cuts will actually be extended, for the wealthiest americans among us and that is not what nancy pelosi or the president talked about this but listen to this: >> it seems to me, the big issue here is on the republican demand for permanent intentax cuts, the
9:09 am
not saying owning let's keep it going one more year and that can be part of the discussion. >> part of the discussion, keeping the door open for that, going forward and extending them for one year and that is a big problem because we have heard from the treasury secretary, tim geithner, who thinks the reason we're in the mus in the first place is because of the bush tax cuts for the wealthy. and one of the main reasons, he says, for them to continue, would be a political disaster, president obama also on the record for letting them expire at the end of the year. >> dave: it is clear the middle class tax cuts will be continued and the wealthiers 2%, looks like, again there is a possibility, 4-5 democrats who have come out publicly supporting extending thoe ininga year and a lot of things facing the democrats, for the election and what will the leadership do and how will they protect the majority in the house, that is their number one goal approaching november and apparently their effort is to protect the most vulnerable incumbents, they will shift money around and if you look like you are on the edge of losing, if you look like you
9:10 am
haven't gained traction in the last couple of months, money is not going your way and here's who you if you are waking up with us. >> alisyn: wake up, you six, again, the dccc is talking about -- actually not protecting them but almost putting them out to pasture because, if they... if they haven't shown any traction they might sacrifice some of these most vulnerable ones in favor of people who are locked in tight race where's they can pull out a victory. >> clayton: throw those on the screen, these individuals on your screen, actually won elections either in the past election or the election beforehand and took seats away from republicans, so, these are not in blue state area, especially betsie mark. >> chris: up there in kol readily, he's 11 points down right now in colorado, congressional 4th district and these seats are not blue-state seats and they might rejigger the money and they'll look at a
9:11 am
the next two weeks and they'll look at new poll numbers and, chris van hollen says, if betsie markey loses, they'll funnel it to seats they know they can win. >> dave: these are some, but not all of the people they -- 6, they could believe there are dozens and republicans need to gain 40 seats to get the majority to make john boehner the likely next speaker of the house and there is a heavy lift for republicans and some said they can gain as many as 60 but the estimate now is around the 40 mark. >> alisyn: and i believe nancy pelosi wrote a letter to some of the health members who are least vulnerable, asking them to send their money. to some of the most vulnerable. coming up, for-profit colleges, also known as career colleges, are they the nest private

9:16 am
association and dan soyfer, education analyst and executive vice president of the lexington institute for a fair and balanced debate. good morning to you. >> thanks for having me. >> alisyn: dawn, research shows these career colleges graduate more students than do community colleges, and they also cost taxpayers less than community colleges. why is the administration going after for-profit career colleges. >> this is part of a strategy that will bring higher education, more efficient, so more americans can afford to go to college, or is it another part of a strategy to get americans addicted to government. >> alisyn: what is the answer to that, don no the cost -- >> the cost of college has gone up, in the u.s., the last 20 year, americans need to find solutions and a way to bring the cost of this sector down, so it is affordable. and, having more choices, it seems to me and not fewer choices is probably the smart way to go. >> alisyn: lindsey, let me play
9:17 am
what the administration said, to justify going after the schools with more regulations. this is arne duncan, secretary of education. i'll read it for you, he said: some proprietary schools, also known as for-profits, have profited and prospered but their students have not and this his disservice to students and taxpayers and undermines the extraordinarily important work being done by the for-profit industry and because of bad apples, it seems they are going after the industry as a whole. >> the truth of the matter is, for-profits higher education institutions are dependents on federal student aid and 77% of the revenue of for profit colleges comes from federal student aid and the fact of the matter is they don't prepare students to be successful in their post-college lives. one in five students that attends the for-profit college, defaults on their loans, and, within three years from
9:18 am
graduating the institution, and, so, there is also a number of problematic admissions and recruitment practices that these for-profit colleges have been evidenced to do such as, recruiting add homeless shelters to get students with low incomes to attend their college, to encouraging students to take out loans, lying to students about the actual cost of college, and, even telling students that they -- no one will come after them, if hey don't pay back their students loans. >> alisyn: it sounds like you are saying there are predatory practices and even the industry would agree there have been bad apples that have given them a bad reputation, however the research shows that they graduate more students than community colleges and in terms of paying back their debt, they are basically at the same amount, if you look at their earnings, of first and second-year graduates as four-year liberal arts schools, don, do you think the administration is targeting these for-profit schools

unfairly? or do you want to respond to what lindsey has said? >> well, it looks like there are problems that need to be addressed. but, for-profit colleges typically serve students with a slower demographic who have lower income, are more likely to pay back their loans, and, for-profit colleges really provide some of the most innovative education, for instance on-line education, that really is a good alternative, particularly for the growing number of nontraditional college students, maybe students who have a young child, or balancing their college education -- >> alisyn: you know, that is a great point, don and i want to get you, last, lindsey to respond, some say it helps minorities and women who have to take care of kids and may work on the side and it will hurt minorities and women most if these go away. >> and -- >> yes. i absolutely applaud any institution that makes it a priority to accommodate for having low income students, students of color, and women,
9:20 am
and -- attend their institution in a way that works for them, however, these colleges are looking to make a profit, they are not looking to serve these communities, their students are graduating and defaulting on loans and not able to pay them back and not able to be gainfully employed and we needed to provide programs, the federal government needs to provide more programs for students of color and low income students that will be able to help them be successful post college that will be able to pay off their loans, to work jobs and support families, and, be -- colleges have an interest in making a profit and not doing that. >>. >> alisyn: lindsey and don, thanks for coming in. remember the amanda knox case, the student convicted of killing her roommate en italy? and fbi agent who thought she was guilty says now the evidence does not add up and he'll join us next. do you sleep with your cell phone in your bed, the startling

>> dave: welcome back, remember amanda knox? she has been in an italian prison three years for the murder of her brush roommate, meredith kirscher. >> alisyn: now and fbi agent who thought she was guilty now says he is innocent. mr. moore joins us from los angeles. >> good morning, how are you. >> alisyn: well. what changed our mind about her? >> the evidence. simply, the evidence. >> alisyn: specifically, what? >> well, there are four things, really, that made the difference. number one, the crime scene pretty much precludes their
9:25 am
involvement. number 2, their psychological profile doesn't work. they are not murderers and three, this evidence used against them was bad or suspect at best. and four, the prosecutor and the chief detective in this case, have both been sentenced to prison for malfeasance. those four things alone would have done it. >> dave: it was riddled with errors but the real evidence, from what i recall, was the knife that had the victim's dna on the blade, that had amanda knox's dna on the handle. how do you dispute that? that seemed to be the smoking gun that put her away. >> the knife, the prosecutor's own witness said the knife couldn't have done two of the stab wounds to the victim. so, if you couldn't have done two of them, and the third one was just a slash, and it could have been any knife and the knife couldn't have done the murder. the dna on that, fits so good,
9:26 am
why won't they let the prosecution or let an independent examiner or an independent lab look at it? they've refused to let anybody look at that -- those dna results, and that is what i mean by suspicious. if it is good evidence, why aren't you going to show it to people and i also saw the video of them collecting that and they opened a drawer, full of knives and took one and miraculously that was the knife. >> alisyn: one of the other things that incriminated her was her behavior at the police station and she said she was way too up beat and maybe doing a cartwheel and said when they interrogated her she said she had a vision of some sort, about her roommate's death. how do you explain those things. >> go to the interrogation, i've seen third world intelligence services do the exact same interrogation and they kept her -- interrogated her 43 hours over five days and the last 8 hours, for some reason, they chose to go from 10:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m. and they used 12 detectives, who were going in, two at a time to
9:27 am
stay fresh for an hour, no food, no water, no coffee, no bathroom breaks and basically broke her and got her to say, confusely, i remember somebody else coming out of the room, and she said what they wanted, they stopped the interrogation. >> dave: fascinating, her appeal expected to begin november 24th in italy, steve moore, we appreciate it, former fbi agent, an intriguing story, we'll stay on it. >> alisyn: coming up we have been following this closely, an iranian woman sentenced to death by stoning apparently has a new punishment. but, not if a new and very powerful ally can help it. we'll tell you. >> clayton: look at this. a 3d image of a little girl, playing, being placed in the road to get drivers to pay attention. is this actually more dangerous, though? >> alisyn: in time for labor day, cooking up juicy burgers, and former top chef contestant.

9:32 am
show we ran a you? study which shows people more than ever before are going to bed, 65% of them don't admit to having slept with their cell phone on or next to their bed. >> alisyn: and we wonder, what this is problem with that, since we're apparently in the this 65%, and that is what -- that is what happens, sometimes you are reading something and you fall asleep. and sometimes you use it as an alarm and sometimes you wanted to check something, the first second you wake up and it makes sense to me. >> dave: we cannot separate. cannot separate from these thien things, and 90% of the 18 to 29-year-olds do that. >> clayton: and you use it as an alarm clock. i don't have an alarm clock. >> dave: i use them as an alarm clock and first thing, reading e-mails and news headlines and i walk to the bathroom, and my wife says, are you reading the news at 5:00 a.m. and often my answer is... yeah. i'm not proud. but, yeah, do you do that, we asked, and

9:35 am
disconnect. >> clayton: a am/fm radio and listened to the phillies and fell asleep with my old sony walk man. >> alisyn: i fell asleep on the phone with my best friend, we wouldn't hang up because we wanted to talk first thing, debbie, if you wake up first, yell and idle wake up, that is... i had a long history of the intimate phone calls. >> clayton: until your father goes, this bill, 24 hours straight phone call? >> alisyn: let's get to your headlines. shall we? all right, meanwhile, we start with a serious story, because at least five iranian companies are paying the taliban, apparently, to kill american troops in afghanistan. this is according to a report this morning, in the the sunday times, of london, and afghan intelligence and taliban forces say the firms paid $1,000 for every american soldier killed, and, up to $6,000 for blowing up a military vehicle. and the iranian embassy in kabul

9:45 am
package of ideas, next week. we are confident that we are moving in the right direction. but we want to keep this recovery moving stronger and accelerate the job growth that is needed so desperate lay across the country. >> clayton: but the white house denies rumors of a second stimulus and so what will we see? do we need this kind of spending. joining us is matt mccall, president of the penn financial group, matt, nice to see you. >> good to see you. >> clayton: what if anything can the white house do, two months left to get the economy rolling again, anything. >> if you do less they are actually doing more in the situation, the more government intervention we have had, really has actually slowed or economy more and put more uncertainty on a lot of small businesses, and, that is a big thing, going on now, with two months until the election, a lot of small businesses are sitting on a lot of cash and they are not out there hiring, because there is an uncertainty of what will the government do next and i think doing nothing is actually the
9:46 am
best thing, right now. >> dave: one thing that is clear, the word stimulus does not register well with the american people and they'd have a -- it would have a hard time passing and the white house said about further stimulus, the options under consideration, build on measures the president has previously proposed and we are in the considering a second stimulus package and the president and his team are discussing several options, as they have been for months and no final decisions have been made and is that because of the lack of popularity, because of the word stimulus, what that does, to the american voters, will they repackage it and call it something different or is it strictly about tax cuts now. >> it should be about tax cuts if anything but it goes back to the word "stimulus" which is a word now that the voters don't want to hear. they realize, initial stimulus did not work and if it did we wouldn't be sitting at 9.6% unemployment and the last thing, we want it's a bigger deficit and spending more money from a new stimulus package. >> clayton: but to challenge that, do they have facts on their side, paul krugman says
9:47 am
facts are on the side of the second stimulus and thought the white house did not go far enough and infuse enough money to match the $1.2 trillion stimulus and, you hear the numbers and it sends shivers downer spine and he says it needs to be more money the government needs to unfuse. >> the fact is, why do you do a stimulus, right? to get the economy moving and to get rid of unemployment, or lower unemployment and, our economy is really not moving and we are down to 1.6% gdp and unemployment rate at 9.6% and a good chance, it hits 10% and, he can say all he want but the facts prove the first stimulus did not work and, why continue to spend and increase our deficit, putting us at risk for the economy to really blow up an interest rates can explode and the dollar could fall apart and the country will be in more trouble. >> dave: they're in a tough spot, they want good news economically and political points and will be stuff to

>> alisyn: remember this story? it was about a five-year-old boy with autism and he was forced to stand in front of his peers, by his teacher, so they could vote him out of class. well, that teacher, wendy fortillo facing charges of discrimination against a student, for refusing to wear a microphone, to help a child with a hearing disability hear better in class. should she have been let back into the classroom in the first place? here for a fair and balanced
9:52 am
debate on that, fox news contributor, tamara holder and criminal prosecutor steven razor, good morning to you. >> good morning. >> good morning. >> alisyn: let's rewind the tape and go back to the first episode, with the teacher and she had the autistic boy stand in front of the class and asked the kids in his class to raise their hands, whether or not they thought he should be kicked out, and after that, the school fined her $500, and, put her on one year probation, should she have been more severely penalized back then? >> well, you know, a year probation without being paid whatsoever is pretty stiff, especially, because she was a tenured teacher and what a lot of people don't know is that she did not know at the time of the survivor-type discipline, what was her goal here is to have a survivor-type environment for these kids, that the kid was being tested for autism and i'm in the defending her behavior, by any means, but, she didn't know that the kid at the time, did have autism. >> alisyn: steven, now, let's go
9:53 am
to the current case, after that whole episode the teacher is now in trouble again, because she refused to wear this audio enhancement device, microphone, that would have helped a hearing impaired child, in her class. and, is there some sort of connection where she seems to be at best insensitive to kids with disabilities in her class. >> that is exactliy the point, which is basically the first incident, maybe tamara can make the argument then but cannot make it now, because, now we know that that teacher has a pattern of behavior which is negative towards disabled students, and, those are precisely the students of which she's entrusted with that need a higher standard of care, not a lower standard and, so, yes. she should know better and not only her, by the way, alisyn, but the school itself has to bear responsibility here, because, they cannot say they did not see it coming. >> alisyn: the school district agreed to retrain the teachers as a result of this to
9:54 am
consistently use their microphones, is that enough. >> that is exactly why i don't think i'm wrong in this situation, she's not necessarily a discriminatory teacher, the department of education investigated the second case not wearing microphones in class and she wasn't the only one, there were two other teachers that were doing that. and they determined they needed -- there were compliance issues and needed to retrain the students, and, so, on the surface, it looks like discriminatory behavior but, these two other teachers engaged in the activity is not necessarily the case. i think these other teachers saved her from locking like discriminatory person. >> alisyn: steven, what should happen now to the teacher, given what tamara is saying, she was not alone. >> the fact she's not alone has no bearing on her activity and what she did. the fact that she found some other people that might have been like minded, and may have made the same mistake and may have equally been negligent do. >> didn't -- >> does not take away her
9:55 am
responsibility. she should have been on a heightened alert towards disabled students after the first offense where she was upset an distraught about, should have learned her lesson and obviously did not. and, then, let me mention on the retraining issue, how much retraining does a teacher need in order to simply put her microphone on? again, this is important, because, there is a corollary to the prior case, in that she -- was she not aware there was a hearing impaired child in the classroom if if she was she should have had the microphone on and that is intuitive and any teacher would know that and be aware of their student's situations and particular vulnerabilities and both cases she is claiming not to have been aware. >> alisyn: your response, what do you think should happen now to her. >> well, i know that the department of education and the school, they investigated this. this woman is potentially or is a liability to the school. so, it's not like they are brushing it under the rug -- >> so you are admitting that she
9:56 am
is a liability? night let her finish. sure, go ahead. >> thank you. so, what -- the unemployment rate in the county alone, is 25 or -- 25% of the people are unemployed. and so you know, they are trying to save people's jobs here. so, like -- let's give the teacher a break, investigate the facts, and, determine here, that, you know, it wasn't a pattern and practice by the teacher. they would have fired her if they found discrimination. >> alisyn: tamara hold, steven razor, thanks for coming in and debating this and we'll obviously keep or viewers updated on what happens in the case. thanks so much. more "fox & friends" in two minutes.
